To Find Life’s Purpose: Honor Your Discontent

To Find Life’s Purpose: Honor Your Discontent

by | Nov 13, 2023 | Dream Building, Life Coaching, Purpose

We don’t always know what our life’s purpose or journey is supposed to be. Or, sometimes we may have so many dreams we are overwhelmed with them all. However, one thing is certain: if we are feeling restless or discontent, we are not living our dreams!

Feelings of discontent and longings for something different in our lives are actually calls from God to pursue our greater good. This is true even when we don’t know for sure what we are being drawn toward. We discover true desire by first noticing discontent.

Embrace the Feeling

When you experience discontent or feel restless and you’re not sure why, don’t shut it out. You may not know what it means, but it is leading you somewhere new. When you shut off your yearnings, you become numb and paralyzed to creating something more interesting.

Bring those inner rumblings to the front of your mind for examination. These rumblings are nudging you toward a more meaningful existence and urging you not to settle for mediocrity. By opening yourself up to them for examination you are allowing your discontent to lead you toward your purpose.

Listen to the Right Voices

We also need to be aware of messages from those around us. Do not let others criticize you into shutting down your dreams, or even your discontent.

Restlessness is God speaking to us, telling us there is more out there. We are not here to lead limited, cramped lives. Allow God’s voice to be louder and ring truer than anyone else’s. Don’t settle for less than your purpose. Nor should you settle for the limits anyone else places on you. Each and every one of us has infinite potential for creating whatever it is we want to create.

Our Life’s Purpose in Dreams

Dreams and desires pull at us, tug at us, speak to us, and will not leave us alone because we are not meant to live cramped lives. Let these inner frictions rub until they create the spark that will ignite the fire of your own life’s purpose. You know your desire is sincere when just talking about it gives you energy and incites motivation in you, even when fruition is far off.

Harness your positive energy to partake in the plan that is in store for you. In doing so, you will be honoring your discontent and letting it lead you to your greater good.

To Your Best Life,

Tracy Lee
